3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, copper beer with a foamy white/beige head. Very fruity and hoppy aroma. Medium body. Very grape fruity bitterness. It actually tastes like you are drinking a very bitter, non-sugared grape fruit juice almost. The bitterness grows as you drink it and the after taste remains for a long time. Carbonation is soft and I think the soft mouth feel suits this beer very well. The hops can be a little harsh for many so if you are looking for a strongly hopped beer this is it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Golden beer with lacy white head. Fresh, hoppy nose with grapefruit, dried peach and acidic berry aromas, some resiny notes. Dry and crisp, grainy maltiness, heavily bitter/resiny finis without significant fermentation aromas. Light body, refreshing carbonation. Very fresh, hoppy pale ale. If you like Simcoe, this is a brew on a hot summer day.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ #h-J14, 20/06/14, thanks bluus. Pours a light orange with a decent, white head. Aroma is citrus, lemon is pretty strong. Some passionfruit/pink grapefruit in the background. Taste is dominated by the citrus and lemon with the pink grapefruit being again in the background. Lemon and lemon peel become very strong in the finish and aftertaste. Fairly light with fairly light carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours slightly hazy, pale golden with a towering, frothy head. The aroma is very hoppy; it contains plenty of citrus fruitiness with a hint of fruity esters and grass. Taste is medium bitter and fairly dry. Pilsner malts provide the backbone but do not really affect the flavours; they are all about hops. Flavours include citrus and tropical fruits. Grapefruit makes a late cameo in the dry finish with lingering bitterness. The palate is medium bodied and slick, the carbonation average to lively. This is indeed straightforward but not in any way flawed; nicely bitter and fresh, American style summer ale.
